Other tanks that are similar to this are the Leopard 2a7-140, M1A3  Abrams Thumper Proto., and the M1A3 CATTB

Again I wouldn't use AW as an accurate source for tanks because simply the Leopard 2a7 140 never existed. A better comparison would be with the Leopard 2 KWS III.

I didnt use AW as a source, and if i did i would say Leopard 2AX, because the Leopard 2a7-140 was actually a design that kinda failed

And the AMX-56 T-4 Leclerc which is another MBT that converted from 120mm to 140mm, is also similar to the Pz. 87-140

https://aw.my.com/us...leopard-2a7-140 .Literally whenever when I search up the leopard 2a7 140 in Google literally all that shows up is AWs version, and yes AW does have a leopard 2a7 140. Unless you have actual sources to prove it exists then for now its literally a fake tank.A minor pet peeve but the CATTB is labeled as the XM1A3 which is untrue because its just a prototype. BTW leopard 2AX uses a 130mm cannon.

In the third stage of KWS was the planned replacement of the Leopard 2 turret by a new turret fitted with a 140 mm NPzK tank gun, an autoloader and the IFIS battlefield management system. The ballistic protection at the hull was to be improved. Originally a total requirement for 650 Leopard 2 tanks with KWS 3 was projected. It was never finalised, but the 140 mm NPzK tank gun was tested on an older prototype. In 1995 it was decided to cancel due to changes in the political environment. The funds were redirected to the NGP project of the German army. The Leopard 2A6M was developed with an enhanced mine-protection kit providing protection against mines that can detonate below the hull (like mines with bending wire trigger) and EFP mines. The weight of the Leopard 2A6M is 62.5 tonnes.

The tank was going to be designated as the Leopard 2A7-140 but then like i said, production was cancelled and the plans were scrapped

nothing about the article said it was planned to be designated as the Leopard 2a7 140

BOI. it says 140mm NPzK tank cannon fitted into the new turret with an autoloader

but it doesnt specify that it was 2a7 turret and you do realize this a wikipedia article in which any person can go willy nilly.
